I was browsing YouTube this morning and found some inspiration in Ryan Houston’s channel from a few Irish shrimp patterns that he tied. These are on partridge code m hooks. Maybe something that will get down deep on a dry line next weekend.
These are fantastic ... very nice !!
These UK style shrimps are very much over looked in my opinion. I've used them in the past here on my home river with good results. Really work well on pressured fish in clear water.
Yes, they sink very well and on those Code Irons, they will drop like a stone. Keep them sparse and they will keel well. Over hackling this style will cause side swings and up side down riding. Yours will be fine
Along with these, I urge you to try a Tippet Shrimp and an Ally's Shrimp as well.
This style of fly is very shripmy-sexy
